On Wednesday, I was driving down the highway and it struck me: Summer is over. Autumn is here. It was cool, overcast, the corn in the fields is no longer green.
That is what fall feels like for me. I always think of overcast days. Oddly enough, I don't smell the change of the season in the air just yet. I'm sure that will be here shortly.
So many things to look forward to:
Preserving food: apples, grapes, and whatever else
Eating food: pumpkin muffins!
Cutting and hauling wood: I love the sound of a chainsaw at 7 am, the smell of fresh cut wood
Leaves crunching under my feet.
Jeans and t-shirt weather.
High school football. Marching bands.
Fall Festivals for the next two months.
So many wonderful things.
If I could have gotten married in the fall, I would have - October 8 was my ideal day. I got December instead, but that's alright, since it was the man I married that mattered most.
I love the upcoming season!
